Paul Millsap struggled mightily in Friday's Game 2 loss to the Cavs, scoring four points on 2-of-8 shooting with five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 27 minutes.
Millsap has lost his offensive confidence and in every other aspect of the game he was lacking tonight. He flashed some good defense against LeBron James in Game 1, but wasn't called upon in that department tonight. Instead, he was a big reason that Tristan Thompson was able to get all he could eat.

Paul Millsap fouled out in 38 minutes against the Cavs on Wednesday, scoring 13 points with seven rebounds, three assists and one block.

With DeMarre Carroll (knee) going down, Millsap is now going to have to guard LeBron James more often, which isn't a bad thing for the Hawks defense. However, all that extra effort on the defensive end could take away from Millsap's offensive game. Regardless, his minutes will be close to 40.
May 20 - 11:24 PM

The Hawks are quietly optimistic about re-signing Paul Millsap.

The Hawks will definitely want to bring him back. Millsap can defend multiple positions and his offensive game has grown tremendously since joining the Hawks. He'll likely be a second round pick in fantasy drafts next season.

Paul Millsap had 14 points, seven rebounds and six turnovers on 6-of-14 shooting in Wednesday's crazy win over the Wizards.

Millsap never got it going and didn't do a whole lot during a key 14-0 run by the Hawks, but he did have a couple big rebounds down the stretch. Al Horford carried the Hawks tonight, but Millsap has a nice chance to bounce back in Game 6.
May 13 - 10:56 PM

Paul Millsap improved greatly over his Game 3 performance in Monday's Game 4 win over the Wizards, scoring 19 points on 7-of-13 shooting with five rebounds, six assists and two steals in 27 minutes.

Millsap struggled with foul trouble and despite the solid production he wasn't as sharp as he normally is. After his Game 3 struggles with the flu though, it's clear he's trending in the right direction.
May 11 - 9:41 PM

Paul Millsap will start against the Wizards on Monday night for Game 4.

It's no surprise and he will play without any restrictions. The Hawks went with their bench down the stretch on Saturday night, but that may have had to do with Millsap not being 100 percent. Pero Antic had a lot of trouble on defense, so expect the starting unit to have a better night.
May 11 - 5:39 PM

Paul Millsap (flu) is good to go ahead of a critical Game 4 against the Wizards on Monday.

The Hawks are down 2-1 and can't afford to slide into a 3-1 hole. "Paul is good," Mike Budenholzer said. Millsap said he was feeling better on Sunday after being forced to come off the bench in Game 3, so he should occupy his usual spot in the starting lineup on Monday evening.
May 11 - 11:39 AM

Paul Millsap said on Sunday that he feels much better after he was forced to come off the bench in Game 3 on Saturday due to flu-like symptoms.

Millsap didn't look good in Game 3 and finished with just eight points, two boards, two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer, so the Hawks have to be relieved that he is feeling better. The Wizards are now leading the series 2-1 with Game 4 set to take place in Washington on Monday, so we would expect Millsap to be back in the starting lineup for such a crucial game. Pero Antic will likely shift back to the bench on Monday and can be ignored in pretty much all formats.
May 10 - 1:20 PM

Paul Millsap (illness) came off the bench on Saturday against the Wizards, finishing with eight points, two rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

He did not look right and clearly the flu-like symptoms were bothering him. Millsap has Sunday off to recover from his illness, so expect him to be ready to go for a very important road game on Monday. The Hawks went with some backups today with Mike Muscala scoring seven points with three rebounds while Mike Scott added eight points and four boards. Both hit clutch treys down the stretch, but they won't get significant minutes as long as Millsap is 100 percent.
May 9 - 8:04 PM

Paul Millsap has the flu and will come off the bench on Saturday.

He is still expected to play, but being bumped from the starting lineup obviously doesn't bode well for his health in this game. Millsap has been a very tough cover all season and the Wizards will be able to do a lot more on both ends with Millsap on the bench. If he's in your DFS lineup, you might want to pull him. Pero Antic will start while Mike Scott and Mike Muscala would also benefit.
May 9 - 4:50 PM

Paul Millsap flirted with a triple-double during Sunday's Game 1 loss, scoring 15 points on 6-of-17 shooting, to go with 12 rebounds, eight assists, one three-pointer, two steals, two blocks and four turnovers over 39 minutes of action.

Washington is one of the best teams in the league at defending the power forward position, so Millsap could be in for a rough second-round series. He's still going to play heavy minutes, as a crucial part of what Atlanta does, but when 64.7 percent of your shot attempts come with a defender within 0-4 feet of you, it's going to be difficult to shoot a high percentage. The Hawks will need a better all-around effort if they hope to even the series up during Tuesday's Game 2 in Atlanta.
May 3 - 5:45 PM

Paul Millsap picked up a playoff career-high five steals during a 91-83 loss to the Nets on Saturday with 18 points, 17 boards, three assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

Millsap terrorized the Nets on defense and none of his teammates had even half of Millsap's rebounding total -- Al Horford had eight. The Nets continue to leave him open for 3-pointers and he's now made six in his last two games. He is coming off a 19-point, seven-board game from Wednesday and should have another big line in Game 4 on Monday.
Apr 25 - 5:56 PM

Paul Millsap scored a team-high 19 points during a 96-91 win over the Nets on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

The Nets left him open from deep and Millsap made them pay. He did have a shoulder injury heading into the postseason, but he ditched the protective padding for this game. Based on the line tonight, he won't be using a protective padding on his shoulder again. The Hawks will take their 2-0 lead to Brooklyn for Game 3 on Saturday.
Apr 22 - 10:41 PM

Paul Millsap will play without his protective shoulder pad in Game 2 vs. the Nets on Wednesday.

Millsap also participated in practice on Tuesday and this is a great sign that his shoulder injury is progressing well. He struggled in Game 1 with just six points on 2-of-11 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block, but it will be interesting to see how he fares tonight without the shoulder pad.
Apr 22 - 10:52 AM

Paul Millsap (shoulder) was able to take part in Tuesday's practice.

Millsap is dealing with a right shoulder sprain and contusion, but was able to practice without the compression shirt or the pad he has worn in the past two games since his return to the lineup. While he did have kinesiology tape on his shoulder, the lack of compression shirt should be a a good sign as Millsap attempts to get healthy for what the Hawks hope is a long playoff run.
